Devin Pope
2021 6-2 SG Devin Pope – Cross Creek
After leading Cross Creek to their first ever state title, upsetting nationally ranked Sandy Creek in the Class 3A State Championship by scoring a team-high 14 points, Devin Pope was the talk of camp with his explosive leaping ability, outside shot and ability to get to the hoop.

Team 1

2021 6-3 PG Micah Bell – Chapel Hill – GPA: 3.0
A late arrival to camp, Micah Bell brought fireworks with him when he arrived. The wiry guard was electric when getting downhill, using a graceful glide to the hoop and elite bounce to finish at the rim. Bell had monster dunks that had defenders clearing out of the way to live to see another day. Bell’s athleticism and wingspan help him defend at a high level. He moves his feet easily and can jostle free steals. Bell has received D-I interest and offers over the course of his career. He’s a no-brainer High Major D-I athlete. He will have to prove he can consistently shoot from the perimeter in able to reach his high ceiling; he has a bit of a slow release with a hitch. Once he gets his jumper fine-tuned, Bell could make an immediate impact at the next level.

JoJo Bell
2022 6-2 SG JoJo Bell – Central-Carrollton – SEBA FCI Warriors – GPA: 3.95
Joseph Bell brought energy on the floor and on the bench. While on the floor, Bell used his length and athleticism to attack the hoop. On the bench, he’s vocal in support of his teammates. Bell has all the tools to become a nice sleeper out of West Georgia. He gets in passing lanes and uses his springy legs to rebound in traffic. He did his best work when he was able to get downhill and elevate. Bell plays bigger than his size thanks to his motor and leaping ability. He was one of camp’s breakout performers.

Amarion Jackson
2021 5-11 PG Amarion Jackson – Camden County – Team Sky Priority – GPA: 3.0
Some players just say they want to play college basketball while others actively go out and make it happen. Amarion Jackson made the five-hour drive from Kingsland to be able to participate at camp and he was the first one at our door ready to check-in. It was a business trip for Jackson and he did just that – get to business. Jackson is a strong bodied guard with a tough demeanor. He did a nice job attacking the basket where he could take bumps getting to the hoop. Jackson finished at the rim but didn’t force anything, often looking to make the extra pass first before calling his own number. He hit a few threes on the day and provided playmaking and good on-ball defense. Jackson visited Gordon State on Monday.

Dean Soulsby
2025 5-11 G Dean Soulsby – Allatoona – NME Elite – GPA: 3.5
Dean Soulsby provided court vision, rebounding and timely shot making playing against the big boys. The rising freshman fit in well and quickly found his niche within the team. He drilled a three-pointer and picked up a handful of assists.

Jeremy Sams
2022 6-2 W Jeremy Sams – Veterans – Georgia Rebels – GPA: 3.2
We really liked how Jeremy Sams played. Coming from Middle Georgia, Sams brought toughness to the table. He was an inside-out presence that was able to collect rebounds and push in transition. Sams is capable of playing 2-4 with his strength and quickness. He finished with both hands at the rim and made some good decisions off the dribble as a passer.

Caleb Whitlock
2023 6-7 C Caleb Whitlock – Central-Carrollton – GPA: 2.5
Whitlock was a big body that caused issues on the offensive glass. He was able to high point rebounds and earn multiple attempts at the rim. As camp went on, he got more comfortable with the pace of play. He still needs refinement with his footwork and conditioning but for a sophomore, there is plenty to work with.

Blake McAlister
2022 6-1 G Blake McAlister – Allatoona – PSB ATL – GPA: 4.0
Blake McAlister was one of the most consistent players in camp, averaging 9.5 points per game over the span of four 20-minute games. McAlister is a well-rounded scorer. He’s really good at getting to the basket, but he also hit a three in every single game. Blake was able to start his own fast breaks and push the tempo. He showed off a nice floater when getting inside.

Tyler Cash

2023 5-9 G Tyler Cash – Allatoona – GPA: 3.2
Tyler Cash played the role of set up man. He was a facilitator on the perimeter that didn’t need to hunt his offense in order for the team to be successful. Cash didn’t force the issue and was patient as a ball handler and scorer.

Team 2

Eric Howard
2022 6-0 PG Eric Howard – Marietta – Lights Out Ballers – GPA: 3.0
One of the best rebounding guards in the state, Eric Howard and his bouncy aggressive style earned rave reviews from the staff. Howard plays with major energy. When he wanted to, he could get to the rim at will where he would explode to the hoop and finish over the defense. Howard is still developing his true point guard skills. His outside shot and ability to change speeds are room for growth. If he can add an in between game with some pull-ups and floaters, Howard could be deadly. The one thing you can count on when it comes to Howard is his effort. He’s shown flashes of putting together a breakout campaign and now heading into his senior season, expect him to leave everything on the floor.

Micah Norris
2023 6-4 W Micah Norris – Forest Park – Swain Basketball
The big strong swingman hit some pull-up jumpers throughout camp. He has a chance to be a strong player in due time. Norris can get to the basket and absorb contact while doing so. Defensively, he’s solid enough to help defend multiple spots. He could turn into a mismatch problem with his inside-out capabilities.

EJ Holland
2022 5-6 PG EJ Holland – Rome – Clock Tower Hoopers – GPA: 3.5
Though undersized, EJ Holland was a scrappy defender and overall coachable player. He was at his best when he was able to scorch the nets from deep. Holland is a good shooter that has to be accounted for at all times. He had some nice drives to the hoop where he dropped in floaters over shot blockers.

Kellen Phillips
2025 5-7 G Kellen Phillips – Allatoona – Impact-White – GPA: 4.0
Kellen Phillips found himself in the right spot on defense multiple times. He understood rotations and when the ball came his way he had active hands to get deflections. His offense came on mid-range jumpers.

James Burns
2025 6-2 F James Burns – Central-Carrollton – Georgia Travelers – GPA: 4.0
Another young player who got invaluable experience at camp, James Burns quickly asserted himself as the team’s garbage guy. He did the dirty work as he crashed the glass hard and blocked out. As the day went on, his synergy with the team improved. As he got more comfortable, Burns opened up his offense with drives to the hoop.

Marquise Morrison
2021 5-11 G Marquise Morrison – McEachern – ATL Elite – GPA: 2.8
Marquise Morrison played within himself and served as a steady ball handler. He pushed the tempo when needed and set up his teammates. Morrison knocked down some shots from the perimeter and did a good job driving and kicking.

Jay Harding
2023 5-9 G Jay Harding – Central-Carrollton – GPA: 3.9
Jay Harding shot the ball with confidence as he helped space the floor. When playing on the perimeter, he would sneak in for offensive rebounds to earn second chances for his team. He did a nice job defensively whenever left on an island.

Kolton Drummond
2022 5-10 G Kolton Drummond – Bowdon – GPA: 4.02
The toughness of football standout Kolton Drummond was on display. He rebounds well for a guard, using his strong body to clear out space. Drummond was one of the better shooters at camp, drilling five threes over his four games. He moved well without the ball and drew the attention of the defense at all times.

Jaylen Harris
2021 6-3 SG Jaylen Harris – Kell
One of the best available unsigned guards in the state, Jaylen Harris brought his alpha dog mentality to camp. He’s tough as nails and scores from three levels. Harris drilled five triples as he spaced the floor with great range. Once defenders got up on him, he was able to use his physicality to blow past them as he embraced contact at the rim. Harris could be a 3&D guy at the next level. College coaches have inquired about him dating back to the state championship.

Team 3

Authur Johnson
2023 5-8 PG Authur Johnson – Bowdon – GA Bisons – GPA: 3.1
Authur Johnson was electric. The Class A-Public All-State guard made a believer out of everyone in attendance as he dropped in six threes over his first three games and left defenders in the dust when they tried to check him. Authur is a pitbull of a player. Though small, he’s strapped with muscle and competes on both ends. The lefty is a shifty playmaker with a creative handle. He knows how to snake his way into the lane and uses hesitation dribbles to freeze the defense. Johnson finishes with nifty scoop layups and can deliver dimes with one hand off the bounce. Authur was one of the toughest players to defend at camp. He is trending in the right direction.

Carrieun Mathis
2021 6-6 F Carrieun Mathis – South Paulding – GPA: 3.0
The first camper of the day was able to sneak into the gym before registration started. We didn’t hold it against him but we let him know we needed a big performance. Carrieun was able to deliver as he used his length and diverse skillset to influence each game. The lanky lefty can play inside and out. He swatted six shots over his first three games and was camp’s top rim protector. He needs to add some weight in order to muscle his way around the rim at the next level, but his activity on the glass and his ability to step outside and shoot the three bodes well.

Kervens Yacinthe
2021 6-5 W Kervens Yacinthe – Paulding County
A prolific scorer, the All-State bucket-getter did just that at camp. The southpaw splashed in a handful of threes before getting downhill. Yacinthe excels at getting to his left hand and playing the angles off the glass. He’s a great isolation scorer that doesn’t need space to put points on the board. He will need to make sure he plays lower to the ground to keep his dribble tight when facing tough defenders. Kervens is a college-ready scorer. He has the physical tools to become a solid defender over time.

Brandon Davis
2024 5-2 PG Brandon Davis – Hiram – Georgia Hornets – GPA: 4.0
The smallest player in camp, Brandon Davis held his own with the big boys. He served as a ball handler and passer that got the ball in the right spots. Davis didn’t take a ton of shots, but he was able to cash in from the three-point line when open. His energy was a positive.

Landen Pitts
2023 6-1 G Landen Pitts – Allatoona – GPA: 4.2
Landen Pitts played the role of swingman on his team. He showed the ability to shoot the three and had the toughness to score at the rim. Pitts played bigger than his listed size. He has nice length and was able to block a handful of shots.

Jackson Rose
2025 5-10 G Jackson Rose – Central-Carrollton – GPA: 4.0
Jackson Rose provided some high IQ for his team. He got to his spots and was ready whenever the ball went his way. Jackson has a nice perimeter jumper. Rose did a good job rebounding in spurts.

Elias Harrison
2023 5-8 PG Elias Harrison – Banneker – Swain Basketball – GPA: 3.5
Defense was Elias Harrison’s calling card. With plenty of scorers and shooters on the roster, Harrison stuck out with his on-ball intensity. He was able to get up in opponents and make them uncomfortable.

Max Young
2024 6-1 G Max Young – Central-Carrollton – GPA: 3.9
Max Young understands the importance of spacing on offense. He found his niche in the corner, as he opened up the floor for ball movement. Young remained shot ready and buried a couple threes on the day.

Team 4

Daethan Harris
2023 5-9 PG Daethan Harris – Jones County – GPA: 4.0
It comes as no surprise that Daethan Harris is a floor general. The son of Coach Buck Harris, Daethan is an extension of the coaching staff on the floor both literally and figuratively. When he pushes the ball, he always keeps his head up to scan the floor. Harris can make textbook pocket passes on the money. When the ball isn’t in his hands, he does a nice job cutting. He showed some range on his three-pointer as he hit a few off the dribble.

Jack Hewitt
2022 6-3 SG Jack Hewitt – North Cobb Christian – SEBA FCI Warriors – GPA: 3.9
The smooth lefty was at his best when getting downhill. Jack has a nice glide to the hoop with sneaky athleticism. He hit a few threes and finished through contact to convert multiple And-1s. He brought energy on defense. With his size and length, he got into passing lanes and also helped out on the glass. He could be a prospect that D-III programs will be fighting over this time next year.

Kaeden Twiggs
2021 6-4 G Kaeden Twiggs – Fannin County – GPA: 3.57
A lot of eyes were on Kaeden Twiggs on Sunday. Oglethorpe honed in on the North Georgia standout and he was able to show some flashes of what made him an All-Region player. Twiggs has very good size for a guard/wing. He has a quick first step and can explode downhill. He had a few eye-catching reverse finishes that showcased his skill. Continuing to hit shots from the perimeter will help Twiggs fully round out his offensive arsenal.

Cayden Charles
2022 6-2 G Cayden Charles – Allatoona – SEBA FCI Warriors – GPA: 3.7
What stands out most about Cayden Charles is his two-way efficiency. He’s a very good on-ball defender with length and on offense, he can get to the basket with his long strides. Charles grew into the role of defensive stopper his junior season and now will be asked to score more. Cayden is a quality finisher with a solid outside shot. He may need to fine tune his ball handling some more, but he’s improving each time we see him.

Chase Tyler
2024 6-2 W Chase Tyler – Hiram – Georgia Hornets – GPA: 3.8
We need to bring out our measuring stick for Chase Tyler. Listed at 6-foot-2, Tyler is as long and lean as they come, all arms and legs. For a young player, Tyler is an interesting prospect that looks like he will grow even more. He hit shots off the dribble, from the mid-range and scored on takes to the basket. His range extends out to the three-point line but most of his damage was done inside the arc. Chase has upside on defense. He can guard multiple positions and can pick up deflections with his wingspan. Stay tuned for his development.

Karson Baldwin
2024 5-8 G Karson Baldwin – Columbus – GPA: 3.0
Karson Baldwin found a fit as a ball handler on his team. He was able to keep the offense flowing and didn’t worry about hunting his own shot. When he did look to score, he used pretty floaters to drop in buckets over the defense.

Landyn Murphy
2025 5-6 PG Landyn Murphy – Jonesboro – Georgia Jayhawks – GPA: 3.7
The first thing that stood out about Landyn Murphy was his high, rain-bringing jumpers. His arc was always scraping the ceiling and would be nothing but net from three. Murphy was a smart player. His lack of size didn’t hinder him from probing the defense. When he got in the lane, he used a tear drop to score in traffic.

Brian Bain
2022 5-7 PG Brian Bain – Central-Carrollton – SEBA FCI Warriors – GPA: 3.9
The aggressiveness of Brian Bain caught our staff’s attention. He’s a tough guard that will get on the floor for loose balls. He plays an in-your-face style of defense and has a burst of speed when the ball is in his hands. He pushes well in transition and gets to the rim. Bain can pull-up short for floaters or use his athleticism to finish through contact. Brian has good bounce and is a reliable playmaker.
